RIHA Journal ( invites submissions for its Special Issue:

Beyond boundaries. Artists and art critics from Central and Eastern Europe in the West.

The aim of the Special Issue is to present artists and art critics from Central and Eastern Europe who gained a special position in the Western Art World and played an important role in the development of art and art criticism. Many of them, well-known in the West (i.e., France, Germany, Great Britain), stayed almost unknown in their homelands although their output was imposing. The Special Issue is not confined to one particular period or one country. Papers may deal with figures active through all the centuries (from the Middle Ages to contemporary times).

Guiding questions:
1. Mechanics of success
2. Relations with local/national artistic milieu
3. Reception and evaluation by the local/national artistic milieu
4. Fate (from fame to oblivion)

We welcome papers in English, French and Polish. Suitable submissions will be sent to two expert peer reviewers for blind peer review. Texts should not exceed 50,000 characters (incl. footnotes and spaces) and include no more than 15 images. For the format of bibliographic references please consult the RIHA Journal styleguide at :
No particular electronic formatting is required. Please keep the electronic formatting of your manuscript as simple as possible.
